LP, Obidient Movement now effective opposition – Peter Obi warns Tinubu


Following the verdict of the Supreme Court that affirmed the election of President Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, has declared that the party is now an effective opposition.


Obi said LP moved into effective opposition due to its policies and the governance modalities that the party campaigned for prior to the 2023 presidential election.


He highlighted the need to reduce the cost of governance, move the nation from consumption to production, reduce inflation, end insecurity, promote the rule of law, guarantee the responsibility to protect citizens, and stabilize the Nigerian currency.


The former Anambra State governor spoke during a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday.


According to Obi: “Going forward, we in the Labour Party and the Obidient Movement are now effectively in opposition. We are glad that the nation has heard us loud and clear.


“We shall now expand the confines of our message of hope to the rest of the country. We shall meet the people in the places where they feel pain and answer their needs for hope. At marketplaces, motor parks, town halls, board rooms, and university and college campuses, we all carry and deliver the message of a new Nigeria. As stake holders and elected Labour Party officials, we shall remain loyal to our manifesto.


“We will continue to canvas for good governance and focus on issues that promote national interest, unity, and cohesion. We will continue to give primacy to our Constitution, the rule of law, and the protection of ordered liberties. We will offer the checks and balances required in a functional democracy and vie robustly in forthcoming elections to elect those who share our vision of a new Nigeria.


“Given our present national circumstances, there is a compelling need for a strong political opposition. We shall, therefore, remain in opposition, especially because of the policies and the governance modalities that we in the Labour Party campaigned for, especially reducing the cost of governance, moving the nation from consumption to production, reducing inflation, ending insecurity, promoting the rule of law, guaranteeing the responsibility to protect, and stabilizing the Nigerian currency; are clearly not the priorities of the present administration nor is it interested in achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).”
